To paint the grill, remove it and lay it down flat. It's easier to paint. The tails I used plasti dip smoke.

It started to rain so the pics are not so great and I notice that I'm going to have to re-do the front Ram.

Here's a pic of the tails, still debating on keeping them as is or going with a different kind of tint. Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks Roger,

I have about 6 or 7 coats on the tails already, it dosen't seem to go any dark lol. I'm going to try the VHT spray... and maybe spray the fogs and head lights with a light coat for shits and giggles. I'm also going to touch up the hemi logo's for a cleaner look.

Factory red led tails look awesome to me without dip. Good job on the rest.

Looks good!! Great work..

I was debating the smoked tails as well with the plasti-dip, but I was not sold on the flat finish, even after adding the glossifier it seemed not blend with the rest of the truck. So I ended up ordering some smoked tail light covers and give it a better shine with clean.. IMO..

The rims look awesome. How long do they last before you have to do them again?

I just painted them so time will tell but my cousin rim's are looking great after 6 months. Depends on how many coats I guess.

I noticed your HEMI badge has the 5.7 liter in yellow. Is that because it is a Canadian model? I have the same truck and my HEMI badge 5.7 liter is in red. Or is that a trick of the light?
